The complete, unabridged audiobook of A Game of Thrones. HBO’s hit series A Game of Thrones is based on George R. R.

Would you try another book written by George R. R. Martin or narrated by Roy Dotrice?

Yes I would try another George R.R. Martin Book.
No chance in any lifetime i'd listen to another thing narrated by Roy Dotrice,

How could the performance have been better?

Lack of emphasis sometimes makes it seem that the performer stopped mid sentence. The voices are so similar and Roy's apparent disdain for a slight pause between dialogue can seem like a character is delusional asking and answering questions to themselves.

A more theatrical reading would have been lovely.
